Just one season removed after fielding one of the nation’s worst rushing attacks, WVU now has one of the nation’s leading rushers on their roster.

Leddie Brown is now 5th in the nation in rushing yards with 515 on 81 carries. He has been able to put up these impressive statistics while having 37 less touches than the nation’s leading rusher, Sincere McCormick of UTSA.

WVU sideline reporter, Jed Drenning, would also share an impressive stat from Brown. As of now, he ranks fourth in the nation in rushing yards per game (128.8).

His 87-yard touchdown rush was also the longest for WVU since Noel Devine broke off an 88-yard touchdown run in a 19-16 win over Pitt in 2009.

It appears we have the Big 12’s breakout player of the year on our hands. Leddie Brown is on the verge of something special.
